that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. right now it's time for the "the ed show" with ed schultz. >>> good evening, americans and welcome to "the ed show." tonight from new york, these stories on the table and hit mighot buttons at this hour. how about them righties? the tan man and the young guns unveiled what i call their plague on america today. my headline, they only mention the middle class three times. now, folks, that ought to tell you something about how much they really care about you. more on that. >>> plus, reaction from majority whip, jim clyburn out of thenous just a moment. >>> lynne cheney, well she's just like her daddy when it comes to psycho talk. she says that president obama is unwilling to keep the american people safe. i'll show you what the president really said and we'll get rapid fire response on that. and aren't you getting kind of sick and tired of the doom and gloom predictions that are out there by all of the experts about how bad it's going to be for the democrats in the midterms? i don't buy it. congressman allen grayson a loud and
that every election is a choice. if you have to run against the ideal, if it's a referendum, every one of us will get beats. we'd have nobody in office because there's no such thing as the perfect public servant. the choices you make in politics are like the choices you make in life. you make the best available choice. >> that's an interesting insight into the obama's strategy. he talked about how what obama is doing is to try to draw mitch mcconnell and john boehner on to television where they aren't so good and expose them as part of the no team. part of a long interview we did today. part of an upcoming documentary. by the way, that was taped today at the clinton institute on american politics, university college dublin. one of the many institutes being set up by the former president. >>> james clyburn said if republicans win the house, they'll use subpoena power to try to delegitimize president obama. darrell issa said he was being paranoid and goofy. up next, we'll ask iss what what republicans are planning to do with the power that he will have in his hand. you're watching "hardball" f
taxpayers. this is the same garbage that the republicans used to get us into two off-budget wars and an off-budget medicare prescription drug bill and tax cuts for millionaires that were never accounted for that drove us right into the ditch and into record debt, record foreign debt, record trade deficit, all that good stuff that they try to pin on president obama. i find it more than ironic, john boehner picked a small business to break out his brand-new playbook for america. right after the event passed the house -- the house passed president obama's $30 billion small business bill 237-187 and we should point out that just one republican voted for the bill, just one. republicans are complete frauds when it comes to fixing this economy. they have no plan. there's nothing more american than getting money directly into the hands of small businesses to create jobs and they've been against it. boehner's pledge is filled with tax cuts for the rich, spending cuts to the poor, and it offers nothing to the middle class in the way of job creation, other than a measly tax cut. republicans want to re

. >> the swiss who have been negotiating for her release, but there's no confirmation yet from the u.s. government which, of course, is not represented here. it's frankly a confusing day because there are reports that she was being released. we heard at first, but then there was paperwork to be done. there are reports, richard, that money was paid. >> we have just had a statement from the mother of sarah shourd, she said i hoped and prayed for this moment for 410 days and i cannot wait to wrap sarah in my arms. she goes on to say i can only imagine how bitter sweet her freedom is for her leaving shane and josh behind. she was hiking with josh fattal and shane bauer near the iraq/iran border. they remain in custody. ali arouzi is there right now. do you know what is in store for josh and shane? >> we got a report from the judiciary that their custody will be extended by two months. that may seem ominous, but that's the first time the authorities put a time frame on their jail time. they never said how long they will keep them for. they never formally charged them. today the chief prosec

're going to attend the dedication. senator harkin said republicans won't let us do it? what about the political fall-out if republicans were on tv not letting democrats pass tax cuts for the middle class? >> i was in the hall talking to harkin about that. again, now, harkin is a liberal democrat who normally would be gung-ho to do this. but i was astonished by what he said, that the republicans won't let us do it. the democrats are in charge of the senate. if harry reid wanted to bring up the bill that would allow tax cuts to be kept for everybody under 250 and raise it on that incremental amount, harry reid could bring it up. the republicans would filibuster it. there would be a vote. that could happen if they wanted to do it. but there aren't enough democrats in the caucus of democrats in the senate who are willing to do it. and there's nothing more i can say. they are afraid to do it. and they're afraid of the ads the republicans are going to run against them. >> howard finemann, as always, thanks for your time. >>> let's turn to chris hayes, the washington editor of the nation

the last several decades. that's it's what has got us into this bankrupt position. >> and what does this say about international intervention? do you want to go down that road, mr. candidate, from alaska. some reason, democrats and focus on the money in just a moment. for some reason the democrats have allowed the conservatives to outmaneuver them when it comes to fiscal responsibility and that whole conversation. keep in mind, i'll say this every night before the rally and every night before the election, we got into this mess under their watch. we got under this mess and damn near went bankrupt because of the hundreds and billions of dollars that we spent on a war and nobody had any idea how we were going to pay for it. these masses tax cuts for the superrich in this country is what has got us where we are. and the congress rubber stamped every dime the former president demanded for the war in iraq, and voted over and over again for the bush tax cuts, and cut deals. i wonder how ben nelson feels about that $18 million he got for homeland security as the they bought his vote so he
at that closed door meeting with the president. what have you learned? >> democratic congressional leaders used that strategy session at the white house today to press the president to be more aggressive in helping them campaign in the final weeks before november's elections. i'm told that house speaker nancy pelosi spoke up and said the congressional democrats really want to see him do more of the kind of rally he held in wisconsin this week where he amped up the rhetoric for democratic policies and against republicans especially when it comes to the issue of jobs and the economy. i'm told that in this meeting, the president made clear there would be more campaign events coming, more are already actually on the books beyond the three rallies that have been as publicly in neve metro, pennsylvania, ohio. these sources we talked to insist the tone of the meeting was not hostile. however, democratic congressional leaders did want to hear the promise directly from the president's lips he was going to help them. i can tell you that congressional democratic sources i talked to for some timex pressed

. now, it's just not smart from an economic perspective for us to allow a whole bunch of those jobs that are right here in the united states to go away. >> reporter: boehner made headlines last month demanding the president fire his economic team. mr. obama returned fire in his home, calling out his name no fewer than times. >> there were no new policies for mr. boehner. >> we've offered him new ideas for the last 20 months. >> reporter: on sunday, boehner said he wants to see the bush era taxes for all income brackets, but would support an extension limited to the middle class if he has no other choice. >> i think that's bad policy. i don't think that's going to help our economy. >> reporter: still, the white house claimed the g.o.p. leader had changed his tune. >> i think that congressman boehner was fairly clear yesterday in outlining a position that the president outlined last week. >> reporter: on sunday, a new york times article portrayed boehner as indebted to lobbyists and 45 currently or recently departed house members raised more from lobbyists than boehner, among them

spending and extending bush era tax cuts to help create jobs. joining us exclusively today to discuss their plan, house republican leader john boehner and congressman kevin mccarthy, who was the driving force behind the pledge. gentlemen, welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> thank you for having me. >> chris: president obama says this is the worn-out philosophy of president bush in the pledge. you would extend tax cuts. congressman boehner, how does this show that the g.o.p. has changed since the last election? >> i think it's pretty clear if you look at what is going on in washington, with all the spending, all the debt, all the government take-overs and control. what this document is that we reject that. we want a smaller, less costly and more accountable government. and we go through and lay out specifics, whether it's spending, whether it's getting jobs going again in america, whether it's healthcare, national and border security, and the issue of reforming the way congress does its business. >> chris: let me get into specifics in a moment, but congressman mccarthy, a number of c
, as much as 70% of incomes to u.s. treasury. mid-50s, 91%. t after world jus war ii, check that out. this is is not a mistake. the nation's top income tax rate was a staggering 94%. now, right now, 2010, the goal, juice the economy without ballooning the deficit anymore than necessary. supporters the tax relief say extra income translates directly intoxtra spending. the less you earn the more likely you are to save, to uses the money that you not pay in taxes for daily expenses. taxes for the wealth hey a more round-about effect. might be have extra spending but also the possibility of more saving and investi. the investing part to lead to more hiring. especially if you invest in a start-up business. hired more people. those people spend andve a verc virtuous cycle begins. not a sure thin. republicans and some democrats want to keep the bush tax rates for everybody. president obama saysri keeping e richest 2% or 3% at current rates would ad $700 billion to the deficit. we expect to hear live from the president in just just about an hour from a backyard in irfax, virginia. somebody's
have been hit hardest by the recession and who need to create the jobs that will get us out of it foot the bill for the democrats' two-year advent neurexpanded government. >> iing not believe that when i heard it. he thinks that the wealthiest americans have paid the biggest price. well, just a minute. mcconnell couldn't have picked the worst week to profess his loyalty to the superrich in this country, because today the u.s. crennus bureau released a report showing 43.6 million americans now live in poverty in this country. my friends, that is 10 million more people than live in the entire state of california. it's more people that live in new york and texas combined. 4 million americans have fallen below the poverty level in the last year alone. now, mcconnell uses his time on the senate floor to protect, the tax cuts for the top 2% in this country. now, it seems to me he doesn't give a damb about the 14.3% of americans that have absolutely nothing. blocked unemployment benefit extensions this year. conservatives say hey these people were fat, lazy and sitting on the couch and didn't
